Repetăm până înțelegem

Fiind abonat la mai multe newsletters ale lui Neale Donald Walsch, le primesc fie zilnic, fie săptămânal și uneori simt nevoia să le dau mai departe, deoarece în opinia mea ele revelează idei fundamentale, pe care dacă le analizăm un pic le simțim adevărate, atât în sufletul nostru dar și în mintea noastră, apelând la o logică sănătoasă. Nu sunt lucruri pe care le învățăm, ci pe care ni le reamintim.

Iată ce am primit azi. Am mai pomenit aici aceste idei, dar e bine s-o mai fac o dată.

"Many people have been told that they are sinners, that they were born in sin, and that they will die in sin, their only hope for salvation being their constant call for forgiveness, and God's mercy in granting it, or their belief in God's Son as the Redeemer. 

Others have been told that even if they were worthy of seeing God, they would not be able to see God anyway, because God is so magnificent and utterly unfathomable that God cannot be seen, comprehended, or experienced.

Still other religions teach that to even try to fathom God, to try to understand God, is blasphemous. God is the Inexplicable, and should remain so. 
Conversations with God tells us that all of these premises are false. 

No one is "born in sin." Indeed, sin itself does not exist. There is no such thing as "offending" God. Nor is God subject to stress, anger, frustration, or disappointment. That is simply not the nature of That Which Is Divine

Perhaps this is a good juncture at which to undertake a brief review of just who and what God is. 

In The New Revelations we were told:

God is not a singular Super Being, living somewhere in the Universe or outside of it, having the same emotional needs and subject to the same emotional turmoil as humans. That Which Is God cannot be hurt or damaged in any way, and so, has no need to seek revenge or impose punishment.

We are told something else there as well, something perhaps a bit more unexpected: 

God needs nothing. God requires nothing in order to be happy. God is happiness itself. Therefore, God requires nothing of anyone or anything in the universe."

Parcă sună mult mai real decât basmele primitive pe care le auzim la biserică, așa-i?
